In the fall of 2004, Activision released the Raven Software-developed X-Men Legends on multiple platforms.
An interesting take on the "comic book game" genre, XML is an action RPG, in which you create 4-person teams from the 14 playable characters, and earn experience and money to increase their abilities.
Storywise, the game's focus is on "new" character Alison Crestmere, who is of interest to both the Brotherhood of Mutants and the X-Men. She's mostly just an excuse to shoehorn character backstories into the game with some groan-worthy writing, and you're rarely (if ever) required to use her in missions.
Speaking of missions, they can get quite long. I'm doing my best to have efficient playthroughs of each mission, and I also intend to have updates consist of multiple videos covering each mission. Because of this, updates may not be too frequent.
